A couple of issues with int roaming? It seems odd that I still get txt about roaming after buying a data pack? To the point of being spammed actually :)
Each data conn generates 5 txts, one of which states $30 the other the correct amount. However, the $2.50 tst states to join by 'BUY ROAM (sIZE)' which is incorrect. (tried, didnt work)
The web site states 'buy int10mb' which does work!

I guess it can be beneficial to be reminded of dats cost regularly, but as each txt must have a cost to the provider, Id rather reap the benefits of saving that money myself ;)

Hi, can you PM your number, exact location in the US, network you're roaming on, phone make/model and name and address in NZ (for authentication).

Cheers

If you are using the full Geekzone on a mobile device then you won't get any ads or scripts - pages are a lot lighter.

Here, I am also throwing in a sub so you don't have ads on the full site on the full browser either.

If you are on the m and want to use the full site just tap on the link at the bottom of the pages. You won't get any ads by default (being on mobile) so it's quite fast anyway.

I have added a subscription to your account so you won't get ads on the main site when you use a laptop while over there ;)
